Wu Goes West


Jason Wu is on a roll. Just this year, he won Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award and made it to the top ten in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. Then last night, MySpace Fashion and Lucy Liu hosted a trunk show and sneak preview of his Spring 2009 collection at Satine in Los Angeles. “My favorite look is the citron embroidered dot dress,” said Liu, clad in an ivory organza Wu frock with French knots and Swarovski crystal bursts. An enviable coterie of fans like January Jones, China Chow (pictured here with the designer), Rachel Zoe, Amanda Goldberg, Cameron Silver, and Kate Mara all showed up to support the designer, who himself was snappily turned out for the occasion in a high-low mix of Jil Sander and Topshop. “This year has been surreal,” said Wu, whose very first visit to Los Angeles was April of this year. “It’s so beautiful and sunny, I’ve thought about moving here, but the only drawback is I don’t know how to drive, which is a bit of a problem.” Satine will be the only Los Angeles boutique to stock Wu’s collection, and come fall there will be some exclusive designs for the store. “It is beyond an honor,” gushed co-owner Jeannie Lee, in a Jason Wu top and a pair of shoes straight off the runway. “They’re a little too big, but who cares!”

Demarchelier Loves Penn, Wedding Photos


Patrick Demarchelier talks shop (i.e., Vogue, Irving Penn, and famous subjects) on the occasion of an exhibition of his work at Paris’ Petit Palais museum.

How do gender roles play out in the midst of a recession? Shopping is for women, returning is for men.

What’s more surprising than the news that Nicole Richie and Rachel Zoe have gotten past the “raisin face” crisis is that the newly reconciled pals talked about “real estate and the economy”. For 20 minutes.

Gossip boy Ed Westwick puckers up for shoes. Or maybe he just saw his own reflection.

it’s a zoe world


Looking for something to watch tonight? The, um, not-so-ringing endorsement of a certain stylist’s TV show on Bravo in the Times today is probably more entertaining than anything on your DVR.

Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin’s glow comes not just from her passion for politics; it turns out she’s also got a thing for tanning beds. Go figure. She even had one installed in the Governor’s Mansion, which will definitely come in handy if any visiting heads of state are looking a little wan.

blasblog: jennifer lopez, fashion show pro


In the wonderful world of flashbulb-filled front rows, sometimes it’s not entirely uncommon for the start time of a show to be dependent on a VIP’s schedule (as opposed to, you know, the designer’s), or for the said VIP to be worked into a tizzy by the encroaching swarms of click clickers, and thus get to their seat late. But every once in a while, you’ll find a pro. You’ll find someone who isn’t fazed by stares or photographers, who can enter a crowded tent with grace. A pro. At Oscar de la Renta, that pro was Jennifer Lopez, who swanned in just before the show started, said some hellos, posed perfectly (smile with your eyes, jut the chin out so there are no doubles, hands away from the body so they look their thinnest) for just enough photos, and took her seat just in time to see the first look go by. “That right there is a well-oiled machine,” Rachel Zoe declared. And what did the woman formerly known as J. Lo (don’t call her that anymore, if you didn’t know better) think of the show? “I loved it. I loved it all. I can’t pick just one, ’cause I’d take ‘em all.”
